Creamy, black fruit aromas give way to more incisive, juicy, and coffee-laced flavors plus tooth-coating tannins in the mid-palate; best to age a few years or decant for current drinking.
Taking its name from the lyrical charmer in Greek Mythology, our Lolonis Orpheus entices with a blend of luscious Petite Sirah, softened by notes of Napa Gamay. Grapes in this wine were planted over half a century ago on the benchlands of Redwood Valley. We take special pride in these organically grown grapes and strive to produce a wine that is a living testament to our family's Heritage Vineyards.

A Customer - San Carlos, CA
We love fruit-forward, complex reds. This is a winner and is an unexpected surprise in that a Petite Sirah would be considered less bold than say a Cabernet, but this would hold up, if you like drinkable reds with character. We will seek out more wine under this label as a result of this first experience. Now, back to sipping some Orpheus with a little chocolate!
